Our apologies for the late roundup today, but we're hard at work on production of this week's Norwood News, which hits the streets tomorrow.

Weather: Don't be fooled by this morning's sunshine and mild temps. The weather folks are calling for a mix of rain and-ugh!-snow later tonight, with more snow expected tomorrow. Sorry.
